  7. *How to Make a WordPress Website and Blog *

    Check out the website in my name if you need any web or app development. WordPress rules

  8. I used to use the Yoast SEO, but it conflicted with one of my other plugins to the point my website would not load. I never narrowed it down to a specific plugin, but as soon as I removed Yoast my site was up again.
    Also, my site is more personal than commercial, and my name is very unique, so I am not that concerned with ranking

  9. Great info! I'm actually using 6 of your 7!  I've always struggled with Yoast but at least I'm using the right plugin!
